Title: Disconnection from game
Post by: Tibbo on June 09, 2014, 11:12:06 AM
Hi,

I'm new to Civ 5 and would like to start playing online but i often randomly disc from game. it's ok when i m playing with friends, we can reload it but else it feel kinda frustrating :x.

Does anyone know where this could come from?

Thanks.

Generally speaking there are two reasons that players have connection problems, either your internet connection is poor and creating high ping/latency.  Or your computer is not able to process the game in time and you time out to other players.  You could post your computer specs, and I can tell you if they meet the min requirements for Civ5 or not.  For your internet you can test this at http://www.speedtest.net/  make sure you select a North American server to test against as there is were a lot of our players are from.
